Winlaton Vulcans 12-45 North Shields RFC

North Shields made the short trip to bottom of the table Winlaton, returning with a hard fought win.

Winlaton started well, but Shields responded and captain Andrew Leitch finished off a great team move to open the scoring. This was quickly followed by tries for Lewis Boyle, Matty Dockey and Boyle again.

Winlaton kept working and pulled a try back, making the half time score 5 - 26 to Shields.

In the second half Dalton scored a fifth try but two yellow cards enabled the hosts to take advantage and they scored another try.

However, Shields finished the stronger and managed two more tries once they were back up to their full compliment, through Mark Walker and Dave Anderson.
